“I was there,” says Dr. Paul E. Alexander, recalling the room of medical authorities in charge of the frantic early-2020 response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Dr. Alexander says he resisted the proposals of “social distancing” & “lockdowns” but was ignored, despite his extensive experience in epidemiology.
Now the former science advisor to the HHS alleges that the media and CDC – in decisions motivated by politics – ignored data showing immense harm was being inflicted upon millions of kids by lockdowns and school closures. “All we did was we shifted the burden of morbidity and mortality,” says Dr. Alexander, “from the affluent persons in society… to the poor in society, the marginalized. Women suffered with lockdowns.” Dr. Paul E. Alexander holds a PhD and has graduate-level training and experience in epidemiology, evidence-based medicine, and research methodology. Dr. Alexander is a former Assistant Professor at McMaster University in evidence-based medicine and research methods; former COVID Pandemic evidence-synthesis consultant advisor to WHO Geneva-PAHO Washington, DC (2020), and former senior advisor to COVID Pandemic policy in Health and Human Services.
